Pros The online interface is really nice, clear and has an overall good logical menu structure.
I have had 5 different machines streaming video from a connected USB drive, there was very little if any disruption throughout my house on both 2.4GHz & 5GHz.
Cons Transferring big files to an attached hard drive is slow and does stop others from video streaming.
Make sure the router is demilitarized in your modem and also make sure the DNS is manually input or problems might occur.
Summary Additional: The online Twonky interface is a cool feature.
This router is really good, seems very stable has not crashed or failed since I got it.
I would definitely shop around for this one. Prices in New Zealand vary by $100 so you could save yourself some money by doing the research first.
Pros Setup was straight forward. Performance is excellent. Phone support is top notch.
Cons A bit pricy.
Summary This is an excellent wireless router. You wou will appreciate the simplicity of setup, Cisco's outstanding customer support and the blazing fast speeds.
"WORST RANGE EVER!"on by AC413
Pros Easy-to-use interface for non-techie users
Decent looking apps/features for parents wanting to control net usage
Cons 1. WORST RANGE EVER ENCOUNTERED
2. For technologically-inclined users the router control interface is overly simple, limited and offers almost no real control over your set up.
Summary I set up a CNET account just to warn people about the range issue - look up this router on google, you will see plenty of reviews that mention the 2.4Ghz range is absolutely awful, a thin wall is likely to halve the signal.
I tested this against a £20/$35 Linksys E900 router (an extremely basic router with almost no features of interest) and in a room 2 walls away from the router, the MUCH cheaper router gave a much better signal than this one!
If you have really thin walls/just want it to cover a small area and don't want all the techie control this could be great, but otherwise it's absolutely horrible at this price.
"The Router From Hell"on by kbpm3k
Pros Nice design body wise
Cons Streaming is bad doesn't stay connected and system changes without me knowing. Parental control, priority list always shut off on its on.... Channel with change on its on too...
Summary Stay away from Cisco Linksys system like getting poison ivy without relief.
Tech isn't helpful, 3hours on phone repeating same stuff to do to it to make it work.... Plus they want you to buy more tech service and or a new router.... REALLY !!!!!! Lets fix the one I got within a year first then build my confidence to want another. Although this would make 2 linksys.... 2 strikes and Im out of patiences. Trying Netgear I hope I get some relief.... If not what is next? Any suggestions
Pros Very reasonable price.
Supports 7+ devices.
Cons No cons related to this product.
